reagan challenged the now new but old republican establishment headed by then- president ford, i was involved in that. i remember talking to the republican national committee, and a good friend of mine said, "there's not much i can do because we are going to have to roll over all of you. how do you think i got here? i came in with the goldwater people in 1964. what took you so long?" we have to accept the fact that when new people come in, they want a voice. the reagan people came in, and today, many of them are part of the party establishment. party establishments always eventually seem to act like the old ones. remember pat robinson -- when he ran for president, evangelicals began to stream into the party. ofwas said that a meeting robertson supporters resembled nothing so much as the bar scene in "star wars." they came anyway, and many of them today are part of the new old republican establishment.

, you'd be hard- pressed to find a ford minivan'' worth of israelis that are anti- american. they want to like an american president. whatever their differences, for the most part, every stop along the visit is designed, choreographed to touch deeper chords in israeli society, whether it is the shrine of the books, or the stop at hertzel's tomb, or talking to israeli kids about their future in the 21st century. these are things obama will do very well at. i think this trip -- i would be surprised if it is not a success. there'll be some pickups, -- some hiccups, but the big piece, the public part i think is going to be successful to the extent it can. the way i see it, some say obama is just checking a box. i think he sees that the way towards managing his relationship with the israeli government runs through the israeli public. it does not mean that netanyahu is completely poll focused. i think the issue of iran as a gut issue for netanyahu. it is not just looking at public opinion. certainly having public opinion more on his side, even if it is not a dramatic change, could only help
